This is a set of 14 worksheets to help young learners develop early number sense. Each page features key vocabulary (more, less, same as, greater, fewer, equal to) clearly displayed on the pages.
The pages start simple with children counting how many objects in a set, recording the number and circling a set with more or less. The next set of pages are activities for children to count a given number of items then draw more or less objects. Later activities require children to count how many objects and label sets with the words more, less, or same as. These worksheets were originally developed before the Common Core was adopted. The new standards use the vocabulary of greater, less, and equal. So supplemental worksheets have been added to the packed (The word fewer has also been added to fully develop vocabulary for quantity comparisons.)
Two pages use base 10 number concepts. Children need to examine two base 10 illustrations compare the quantities and label the picture sets accordingly-this is a great enrichment activity or challenge for more advanced students!
